Atma Yoga is located in Tacoma, Washington. And oh, what a beautiful day in Tacoma. I fell in love with Opera Alley near our studio/teaching lounge. Jazz club on the corner is B Square. it is now on my list for the next night out for jazz. No need to drive the hour to Seattle, I can get my jazz fix nearer to home.
Tacoma has beautiful murals all through the city. I had no idea. Tacoma seems like the best kept secret in Western Washington. It's a sleepy little city on a Sunday...at least during our break for lunch between asana-s practices and lectures.
Atma is the sanskrit word for the individual soul or essence within the universal. Or as dictionary .com says: the individual self, known after enlightenment to be identical with Brahman.
We spoke of Atma at length in class. Though it is not the definition given during class - I truly believe dictionary.com definition is spot on.
This is going to be a great fall. I am looking forward to the journey...and Tacoma has grabbed my attention too.
